Lighting up the little faces celebrating Christmas at Aster Hospital.
Santa was extra busy last year, spreading the Christmas cheer by bringing the joy of gifts to all the little ones around Aster Hospitals. It isn't Christmas without Santa, especially for children in hospitals. Hospitals are serious places with serious faces and so too it was in the pediatric ward across all Aster locations. But then out of nowhere, in walked Father Christmas himself!
As Santa visited children in each room, his signature “Ho! Ho! Ho!” was answered with squeals of glee and laughter. And he didn’t just spread around cheer, he had a bag full of gifts and sweets for the young ones too. For a few short moments, we helped the children forget that they were in a hospital and helped transform it into a place of magic and mystery. The happiness and awe on their faces was the greatest gift anyone present could have asked for.
